The Halogen Lamp Fluorescence Microscope produces images of stained tissues, animal and microbiological cell colonies, and pathogens irradiated with light. It utilizes specific wavelengths of light, particularly infrared light, to excite fluorophores in specimens infused with the fluorochrome pigment and thereby generates a highly illuminated image with distinguishable boundaries.
The primary purpose of the halogen lamp fluorescence microscope is to irradiate the specimen with a specific wavelength of light, separate the weaker emitted light from the bright excitation light, and only allow the emitted light to reach the detector. When light reaches the detector, the fluorescent structure of the specimen is superimposed against a deep, dark, almost black background.

An inverted fluorescent microscope uses fluorescence to study specimens, such as living cells at the bottom of a petri dish or tissue culture. The Inverted Fluorescent Microscope has similar components to those of other microscopes, and the only difference is the arrangement of the parts, which are placed in inverted positions.
The specimen is lit using a halogen lamp as a light source. When light enters the microscope, it strikes a dichroic mirror, reflecting one range of wavelengths while allowing another to pass through. The ultraviolet light is reflected up to the specimen by the dichroic mirror. The UV light causes fluorescence in the specimen’s molecules and the fluorescent-wavelength light generated is collected by the objective lens.
